Doing Flickr Groups with jFlickrFeed

My buddy Rahsaan was having a problem getting his group feeds to show up with a tool he had found to bring his Flickr feeds onto his website. He was able to get his public feed feed to work fine but not groups. I threw him a bone and helped him figure it out. I didn’t find a quick answer with a Google Search so I decided to put up a quick post with how I did it so hopefully others looking for this answer find it quickly and save some time.

The tool he was using is called jFlickrFeed and I didn’t see a simple answer in their documentation. Luckily whomever developed it did the right thing and made it really simple to pass the correct variables for the group feed so this is a simple change to get working. Here is the main example and the change needed to get it working.

As you can see all I did was add “feedapi: ‘groups_pool.gne’,” which tells the plugin to use the different feed type. As well make sure you are using the group id and not your user id but it’s just that simple. If you need help figuring out your group id you can put the url for your group into this tool (http://idgettr.com/) and it will tell it to you.

Hope this helps someone get a quick answer to how to do this as I couldn’t find anyplace else that gave an instant answer to this. Enjoy and please leave a comment if it helped you, it’s always great to know when it has.
